    I still remember the last time I talked to Mom Mom Mckee. She said I don’t care what anyone thinks you still talk to me. That is how she was she loved everyone who was her current or former grandchild or child. Once she loved you it was forever. She taught me the right way to do laundry, dishes, and really all homemaking. When I got lice she was the one who cleaned my hair and taught me how to care for it. She taught me how to respect myself as well. I am so sorry for your loss of one of the greatest women I have ever known. May she rest in peace with Pop Pop Mckee.

    Eleanor was a wonderful lady, with a beautiful smile. She was such a thoughtful and giving soul. But, of course she could be stern when she needed to be! I will always remember her and Uncle Jim and what fun they were together. Hope it helps to know how lucky you all were to have had her in your life. May your memories give you solace. Sorry for your loss, and God Bless your family.
